Matt Hayes Adventure Fishing Tackle

Matt Hayes AdventureIt’s probably common knowledge by now. Angling celebrity, Matt Hayes has parted company with TF Gear and signed a 5-year consultancy with Swedish tackle supplier, Fladen. The result is a fishing tackle range named Matt Hayes Adventure.

While at first this may not appear to be a major revelation, it has the potential to do the sport a great deal of good.  It’s clear that Fladen wants to make inroads into the high street – especially large retailers and Continue reading “Matt Hayes Adventure Fishing Tackle”
